Sustainability: Do you Ozzi? A NEW kind of vending machine is on campus in the Rock Creek cafeteria. Here's how it works: Buy a token from the food service cashier. Get your reusable container along with your food. After you've finished eating, put the dirty container in the OZZI machine slot; get your token back. Repeat the next day or whenever you utilize food service. Why should you use the "reusable containers"? Using the "reusuable containers" reduces the amount of paper waste that goes to the landfill thus helping to reduce the amount of methane gases going into the atmosphere.

Recycle dead batteries at the Student Center in Building 3 (AA, AAA, hearing aid, any "small batteries") Look for the white, square bucket.

Sustainability Team: + Recycle your compact fluorescent light bulbs (the curly ones only) at: Home Depot or
Lowe's will recycle both the compact fluorescent and long tube light bulbs.
